The Key To Modern Kitchen Design

The kitchen is the heart of the home - but what’s the key to getting the most out of this space?

It’s true what they say – the kitchen is the heart of the home! Kitchens create a sense of connectivity amongst all members of a household, a cosy hub where the family gathers to eat, talk, do homework, or just unwind after a busy day. The multi-purpose modern-day kitchen goes beyond just meal preparation, and its design has evolved to adapt to this. Most contemporary homes these days feature open-plan kitchens that flow seamlessly into the dining room, living room, or out onto an alfresco space for maximum flexibility and versatility.

Functionality underpins great kitchen design, which is why kitchens in Tasbuilt homes are cleverly crafted to make the space as effective and effortless as possible. Whether it’s incorporating the principles of the ‘golden triangle’ to create a good connection between the sink, refrigerator and stove, or the intelligent integration of the refrigerator in a spot where the family members can still access it without disturbing meal prep, all Tasbuilt kitchen spaces are designed to maximise efficiency and enjoyment.

Storage Outta Sight

The inclusion of a walk-in pantry also goes a long way towards elevating the functionality of a kitchen. Not only does it offer ample storage out of sight, but it adds an element of grandeur and luxury to the room (like a walk-in wardrobe does to a bedroom). See our Apollo and Hardwicke home designs and their kitchen floor plans for prime examples of expertly integrated walk-in pantries.

Finishes & Fixtures

Optimising the function of your kitchen DOES NOT mean sacrificing style. Dial up the décor of your kitchen space with stone benchtops, soft-close drawers, funky bar stools, trendy pendant lights, decorative handles/fixtures, or a statement splashback.
